Open Auditions for BCP's May 2019 Production of James Cawood's "Death Knell" (performance dates 1 - 4 May 2019) will be held at The Mill Arts Centre on Thursday 6 December 2018, 7.30pm. All welcome!

Successful Playwright Henry Roth takes delight in telling his neurotic wife, Evelyn, he has a new, ‘seismic’ play to unleash on the theatrical world. To prepare for its stage debut, he has invited the charming and charismatic (but unknown) actor, Jack Willoughby to their remote Highland home to prepare for the leading role of murderer. Jack’s arrival sends Evelyn into a flat spin when she realises he is her lover - a relationship developed during her time supposedly in rehab in London. Is Henry aware of the relationship?

With the arrival of Inspector Lazan from Scotland Yard - apparently on the hunt for the Highland serial killer, The Ghoul - the play takes another turn. Is he who he claims to be?

In a breath-taking script, sending the audience reeling from one plot twist to another, the genre of “Thriller” is taken on an exciting new journey.

Each character is well drawn, the dialogue is lean and the action is non-stop. Actors should be prepared for physically demanding fight scenes and use of weapons. Previous stage combat experience not essential as training will be given.

You do not need to be a member to audition but will be required to join BCP if cast. Full details of membership options on the BCP website -
